I am using LAN Watch to deploy agents over our network. After the agent is installed I would like a message to pop up asking the user to restart their machine when possible or at the end of the day. In creating the agent install package I made sure that silent install was not checked and that I included the /z switch and a message afterwards. In early stages of deployment testing I was able to get the message to show on the machine after install but now that I am beginning deployment out to machines across the network the message will not show up after install. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
If you use a template to setup your installer what about creating a very basic procedure that pops up a message then attach that procedure to the template and when the agent installs it will pop up your message.
This solution worked when testing the procedure on machines that had the KaUserTsk.exe already running. Unfortunately this program does not start until after the machine has been rebooted. I attempted to create a procedure to start this task but had no luck with that either. Thanks for the reply though.
